WELCOME FROM THE ADMISSION OFFICE

Finding the right school for your child—and your family—is a lot like a great education. It is a journey of exploration, where asking questions charts a course to deep understanding.

To get to know Congressional, we encourage you to explore this website and learn about our inquiry-based education, which prepares students infant–grade 8 to discover not only answers, but also their potential. We invite you to call and ask about our dynamic and talented faculty who are experts in their fields. But just as learning is more than accumulating facts for “the test,” so understanding what a Congressional education can do for youngsters goes beyond collecting information. To really understand the school, come for a tour or an open house, and get a feel for our diverse community—all-caring and all Congressional.
